Im in Disk Management, but how do I assign the Recovery Partition a drive letter?
.
In disk management you should see a partition named "System Reserved". It is 100 megabytes and by default has no drive letter assigned. Just right click on it and select "change drive letter and path". Then you can assign a letter.
ok I dont have a partition called "System Reserved". I have an Acer btw.
.
Is one of the unassigned partitions you have 100 megabytes?

Can you post a screenshot of the disk management window displaying the partitions? That might help us figure it out.

The only way I can run chkdsk now is from command prompt after pressing f8 at startup>repair> command promt (sorry i forgot what the process is called), but had errors in writing the log.

Pls help. I'm trying to avoid a fresh install.

thx!

Method 1: Run CHKDSK from recovery console which will repair the corrupt files.
To do so, follow the steps given below:
If you have a Windows 7 DVD, boot the computer to Win RE from the elevated command prompt, try to do a CHKDSK. You can follow these steps to run CHKDSK :
1) Use the Windows Vista DVD to start the computer in Windows Recovery (WinRE). For more information about how to start Windows Recovery, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
What to do if Windows won't start correctly
2) In WinRE, open a command prompt. To do this, follow these steps:
On the Install Windows screen, select the appropriate Language to install, Time and currency format, and Keyboard or input method options, and then
click Next.

3) Click Repair your computer.
4) Click the Vista installation that you want to repair, and then click Next.

5) Click Command Prompt.
At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
chkdsk drive: /r .
For more information refer the link given below:
Make system repairs from the Windows Recovery Environment
Make system repairs from the Windows Recovery Environment (from Windows Vista Inside Out)
Method 2: Run the Memory Diagnostics Tool manually
Please follow the steps given below:
If the Windows Memory Diagnostics tool doesn't run automatically, you can run it manually.

Disc Check Error
Thx, but Method 1:
I have done that. Chkdsk runs ONLY from here, but can not write a log for it. Gives me error 50 or something when it tries to write a log.

Method 2:
I have done that too. All is well according to the memory diagnostic tool.

There seems to be some confusion w/ my issue. I dont have the
"Chkdisk wants to start at boot up, but can't" problem.

My issue is that I wanted to run chkdsk because my computer Win7 froze, so when I powered back on I tried to run chkdsk. I found out that I can not run chkdsk from GUI or a command promt.

The computer runs fine, I have NOT tried system restore yet because I have never needed to, and the last program I installed was about 5 months ago (which I uninstalled when I initally saw the chkdsk error).

Also I dont have a Win7 install DVD, I just have a Win7 UPGRADE dvd which does not have a repair option.
